Undergraduate degree at Ohio State
One of the most intriguing aspects of our program is our diversity - our diversity in our students, in our faculty, and in the opportunities that exist here.
Electives make up 20% of our curriculum, which allows students to focus their pharmacy education on their specific areas of interest. We are a top-ranked program, have a commitment to direct patient care, and instill a strong sense of leadership in our students. Our faculty is involved in practice and research in a variety of areas.
We have a high retention rate of 94% because we make every effort to assist students with matriculation. We work with students very closely and provide a great deal of support. Our students are assigned to working groups, which translates to a strong campus community.
Our students secure job offers before they even graduate. 40% of our graduating students go on to practice in a community pharmacy. 22% go on to receive post-graduate training -- a residency, fellowship, or PhD program. 24% work at a hospital pharmacy, 1% in managed care, 7% in health services, and 2% go into industry. Average starting salaries are $100,000.
